I often hear debates about the value of amenities in communities. For those of us that are lucky enough to call Reston home we have an absolute treasure trove of events and activities to choose from to fill our leisure time.
Last Sunday I attended “From Here to There” featuring opera singer Elizabeth Bishop performed at the CenterStage at the Reston Community Center Hunters Woods. It was a lovely evening of storytelling in song and all the more amazing to think that it was available to us all, right in our own backyards for a mere $15!
The CenterStage is about half way through its season but there still lots of great shows to see.
The weekend of January 19-21 is the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. This year features a concert by local artist Crys Mathews. If you haven’t seen her I urge you to get tickets, she’s a remarkable singer songwriter, cut from the cloth of the justice and protest writers of the past but current and relevant in every way imaginable.
The CenterStage season offers a wide range of shows from music to dance to discussions with notable public figures like CBS News commentator and comedian Nancy Giles. If you like jazz you’ll want to take note of Jazzmeia Horn on March 30. She’s amazing!
There really is something for everyone.
This may not seem like it has much to do with real estate but the RCC is a huge value-add to the community — I would argue that its presence in the community, and all the ways it strives to enrich daily life for us all, adds to the desirability of Reston.
